Before Christmas I was having a conversation with Michael about how I don't like parodies. It was a sweeping statement that was brought on by Weird Al Yankovic. Strangely, later that day I searched YouTube for the video of a song called Stutter Rap. I performed this song as an airband when I was 12 or 13 with a few girlfriends in Rosetown (I remember Marla was in the "band," but who else? I don't recall). We had no idea what the song was about, but we performed it with zeal during the annual airband competition at the arena. Yes, there was such a competition in Rosetown. We didn't win, but at least I found the video 14 years after the fact. I also found out that the song is a parody of the Beastie Boys. How 'bout that? It's worth watching, if only to imagine the airband version.
Another funny thing about this song is one of the "rappers" - Tony Hawks - wrote a book called Round Ireland with a Fridge, which my Ireland family gave me a few years back. It's hilarious, as you can imagine, and I highly recommend it.
Look forward to an upcoming post about a new tentative plan of mine: respect people's recommendations.
